Summary expansion
The Great War ended ninety years ago and haunts us still, yet much of the detail of that tragic conflict remains unknown. Following the experiences of British Tommies through devastating battles and trench warfare to the Armistice of November 1918, THE SOLDIER'S WAR combines the memories, letters and photographs of hundreds of veterans to present an eyewitness account of 'the war to end all wars'. Richard van Emden goes beneath the surface to explore emotive and controversial aspects of the war that bring us closer to understanding the full range of the soldiers' experience. Remarkable photographs, taken by the soldiers themselves, show the reality of life in the trenches. Van Emden's narrative and the soldiers' words reveal the stories of a lost generation
